How do I: Audition for a play, dance, or music piece at Stephens College?

Stephens’ students in the performing arts programs of dance, music and theater should begin with the call boards of the department they wish to audition for. The boards carry announcements, bulletins and fliers on the latest audition opportunities.

Students should then gather all relevant information, such as the time, place and schedule of the audition. It is best to know any particulars before going in, so as not to make a commitment that cannot be fulfilled.

Theater auditions typically require a prepared monologue, reading from the play for which you are auditioning, or improvisation. Musicals generally require singing 16 bars from either an up-tempo piece or a ballad, depending on the musical.

With dance auditions, which usually demand experience, a prepared routine appropriate to the piece is required.
